Unicharm to Expand in Africa

February 10, 2010

Egyptian plant opening slated for 2012.

Unicharm is building a plant for the production of diapers and other sanitary products in Egypt with a projected start date of 2012. Although Unicharm has established a joint corporation with a local subsidiary in Saudi Arabia in the Middle East, diaper production here could not meet increasing demand. Therefore, the new plant—Unicharm’s first build in Africa—will help serve demand in the Middle East and Africa where populations are rising.
